Looking for something fun to do with the kids during the summer, so we're thinking of possibly driving down to LA for a weekend in July.
We considered some other ideas, but at the end of the day we realize that going to Disney makes it so much more special than most of the other choices down there. On the other hand, we've heard lots of bad things about going during crowded peak season times, which we've never really done. We generally have only gone to WDW or DL during value or moderate seasons, and are used to mostly short wait times.
Our tentative plan could be: drive down from Bay Area where we live, 3 night stay in a cheaper hotel near the parks so we could walk over, with 2 days in the parks (Friday and Saturday) and the final morning at the hotel pool then drive home.
The big issue would be cost vs. value -- 4 2-day tickets at roughly $200 each, vs. how good it would be given big crowds/longer lines.
Any thoughts about whether it would be worth it ? Would Park Hoppers be likely to help significantly ? Maybe other ideas for an LA weekend that might be better value ? Hotel suggestions or other thoughts ?
All opinions appreciated and thanks!
